WAP54GP DHCP Problem

    Installed WAP54GP FW 1.28. SSID1 is encrypted WPA-PSK/TKIP, SSID2 is encrypted WEP 64Bit. It is operating in MIXED wireless mode (B/G). Occasionally WAP will NOT pass DHCP to clients. All will be working, then clients drop and can no longer access internet. When checking IP, all clients get default Windows 169.x.x.x IP. They connect to the WAP fine, but get no IP. When WAP is power cycled, all functions normally again.

    WAP is running POE injector (12v from Linksys). I can manage WAP from ethernet port and wired network, but cannot obtain IP wirelessly. WAP connects to RV042 v1.3.8 and it is handing out DHCP. All wired clients obtain IP's fine and internet connection works...

    I have tried changing compatibility settings, channels, but nothing seems to keep this stable. Was running fine for about 2 weeks, now it's every day or two now that this things misbehaves. I have similar issue with another WAP54GP.

    Any suggestions?

    I have similar problem, without WEP or any security enabled.

    I only enable all the devices (i have 5), in the same channel (1), and reboot them with 1 in AP mode and the other 4 in Repeater mode.

    Only work fine in this channel, i put in a mix mode with channels 1, 6, 11 and still do not work. Only work all in the same channel.

    I have a WAP54GPE with 1.36 firmware, this enable the time settings than the 1.28 or 1.24 version.
